MAX GOES TO THE OR

After much preparation throughout the day, Max is officially in the operating room. We walked with him and the crew to the OR...what an emotional journey. It was so hard to let go of him and know what his body will endure this evening. I smothered him with kisses and reminded him of the hundreds of people sending tremendous love and prayers to him.

I feel so confident that this surgery will be an amazing success. He was so alert and strong today. We had a good snuggle time together and we just gazed at one another...it was wonderful. Tears are overflowing right now as I write this...I am so in love with this lil' guy. Maxwell is a truly incredible warrior. We both are so in awe of the amount of love and comfort we have received from friends, family and strangers. Thank you, thank you.

We should have the first call from the OR within the next hour or so...and then it will be several more hours until the surgery is completed. For those of you in Bellingham and familiar with Treasury of Memories, you will appreciate that we are distracting ourselves with putting together a beautiful scrapbook for sweet Maxwell.
